Wedding photographer extraordinaire Ryan Brenizer invented this really cool technique while on his honeymoon which is dubbed “The Brenizer Method”. For those who may or may not have heard of it and are not sure of what this technique is exactly, it’s essentially using a telephoto lens to create a very shallow depth of field as if shot with a wider angle lens. This technique makes a dSLR image look like it was shot by medium format

The results look quite fantastic.
I am intrigued, and may attempt this.

Very cool, but I'd love to see some 1:1, or at least bigger than 600 pixels in the sample shots. I'll have to give it a try some time soon!

Interesting technique. I can see, tho, where it can be much like selective color in that you want to use it selectively (no pun intended). Overuse would become redundant and boring.

I can see a use for that, but disagree with this:
"If you choose to shoot JPEG, make sure you set the quality of your JPEG to the smallest setting. You’re not taking a single picture, but rather 20 or more and stitching them together so you don’t need to worry about quality on each of the shot as the final output will be a very high quality image. You could shoot at Large, but keep in mind that will exponentially increase processing time."

I think the quote should read:

it’s essentially a shot that looks like it's taken with a wider angle lens, but using a telephoto lens and stitching to create a very shallow depth of field. This technique makes a dSLR image look like it was shot by medium format

Still confusing, but at least correct ;)

But yeah, it looks nice. Creative use of multi-row pano shots ;)
